AEP Embraces a Zero-Harm Culture

At AEP, safety and health are a core value. That's why the company believes in a zero-harm culture, where employees are encouraged to stop a job if they do not feel safe, for example.

Creating and following well-designed policies and procedures, using error reduction tools such as Human Performance and looking out for each other are among the tools being used to get to zero harm.
